When looking at the UFC’s Flyweight division, the first name that should come to mind is Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson. Not only is the Kentucky native widely recognized as one of the quickest fighters on the planet, but after becoming the division’s inaugural champion in 2012, the belt has never left his waist. Currently on a six-fight undefeated streak, Mighty Mouse defended his title three times in 2013, and seems to only be improving with every bout.

Unquestionably one of the most dynamic and talented fighters in the UFC’s young Flyweight division, Joseph Benavidez was also nearly the organization inaugural Flyweight champion, dropping a narrow split decision to Demetrious Johnson in 2012. Since that time, Benavidez has gone on to win four of five bouts, with his only loss coming in a rematch with Johnson. Wasting little time before rebounding from the setback, Benavidez most recently earned his 20th career victory with a Performance of the Night submission win over Tim Elliott at UFC 172.

UFC Flyweight Tim Elliott is living proof that sometimes it can take a fighter a few bouts to hit their stride. After going 0-2-1 to begin his professional MMA career in 2009, Elliott proceeded to find his groove, getting an arm raised in 10 of his next 13 bouts. Capable of getting things done whenever the fight goes, four of Elliott’s 10 wins have come by way of submission, with another three coming via knockout. Elliott notably earned one of his knockout wins over former UFC champion Jens Pulver in December of 2011.

  • Age: 29
  • Height: 5’3” (160 cm)
  • Weight: 125 lbs (56 kg)
  • Strengths: Speed, Fast Hands and Feet, Explosiveness

Winner of The Ultimate Fighter Season 14’s Bantamweight tournament, John “The Magician” Dodson stands out as one of the quickest fighters competing in the UFC today. Making his home in the UFC’s Flyweight division following TUF, Dodson didn’t waste any time establishing himself as the field’s No. 1 contender, rattling off three wins in four fights with only a single decision loss coming at the hands of Flyweight champ, Demitrious Johnson. Seeming to improve every time he steps into the Octagon, it’s likely that Dodson won’t have to wait too long before earning himself another shot at the title.
